The pink Florentine is wearable and screamingly pink. I should add neckline trim, and I really should have sewed the inner sleeves in instead of safety-pinning them in (I’m going to worry about them popping out all tomorrow). BUT, I’m tired. I absolutely hate sewing late the night before an event! I really hardly ever do that, and I *never* absolutely NEVER sew on the day of an event or in the hotel or whatever. Not my style. It’s either done or it’s not.
That said, in the past few years, I’ve gotten quite a few wild hairs to make a new outfit in a freakishly short time before an event. Wtf? There have been, um, three one-week jackets in less than three years now. That’s crazy. None were essential. Just “hey, how about a new outfit?” Bored with what I have in the closet.
The pink Florentine was more of a “hurry and up and see if I can finish this thing that’s been languishing for months.” But still one week. Really don’t know why I pushed myself to do that — only day-tripping a principality event, after all! I’ll be there for a few hours. Ah, but the gown was so close to being done … famous last words.
